The Entire Text of The Suchar Memorandum Concerning DePaul University Professor Norman G. Finkelstein

Title: The Entire Text of The Suchar Memorandum Concerning DePaul University Professor Norman G. Finkelstein

Commentary

Abstract:

In sum, the College Personnel Committee, by its vote and evaluation, supports Dr. Finkelsteinís request for promotion and tenure. They find his teaching to be exceptional and believe that his scholarship, on balance, meets and, for some, exceeds the minimum standards of the College. The views on his service record are mixed with some supporting the departmental evaluation of his record as a public intellectual as important while others view his service record outside the department as less remarkable. The reservations expressed in this report that reflect the more difficult and contentious aspects of his scholarship that I view as inconsistent with institutional values prevent me from sharing in their support of his application for promotion and tenure.
